For the past three years, Saint Luke’s College has partnered with Saint Luke’s Hospital in their yearly disaster exercise. The hospital staff participates in this disaster drill to better prepare them for a real emergency.
The College recruits student volunteers to represent the patients in this drill. The students offer a perspective to the hospital staff that can only be provided through the eyes of a patient. In return, the students get great exposure to disaster medicine and the challenges experienced within the healthcare field during mass casualty incidents.
